The villa has a dedicated yoga/fitness area for wellness classes to take place. It also has a beautiful infinity pool in which you can swim while you look over the beautiful countryside views. During the retreat a fully qualified fitness coach will be present to take classes in dynamic stretching, HIIT circuits, core sessions, kettle bell circuits, mobility and balance, leg power, hypopressives/ respiration, self-defence and nutrition workshops.
Key to the experience are the specialists who oversee the retreat. Fitness Instructor, Paul Singleton, has lived in Ibiza for 17 years and has 20 years’ experience in the fitness industry. He has certificates in PT and Nutrition as well as 15 years’ experience as an MMA/Ju jitsu/Boxing instructor. Meanwhile, yoga expert Sophie Clyde brings extensive anatomical knowledge and a bio-mechanical understanding of alignment to her instruction. Fluid, dynamic sequencing is balanced with restorative postures as students are encouraged to move with full breath and uplifting intention. Whilst challenging her students to re-awaken their muscles and work tenaciously, she also supports you in cultivating deep physical awareness with an underlying emphasis on self-care and the therapeutic benefit of each pose.
Key aspects of the fitness retreat include:
Dynamic stretching – a head-to-toe stretching routine with some new positions that will boost your enthusiasm when it comes to increasing your flexibility.
H.I.I.T circuit – High Intensity Interval Training is a simple but effective 20 minute routine that is easy to remember, only uses your own body weight and burns calories fast.
Core session – Bodyweight exercises that increase torso strength and improve posture and stability.
Kettlebell circuit– Various two and three dimensional kettlebell exercises that will increase muscle strength, lung capacity and endurance.
Mobility and Balance – Exercises to improve your range of movement, flexibility and stability.
Leg Power – Kettlebell weight lifting movements focused on using the quads, hamstrings and glutes.
Hypopressives/respiration – A new and effective method of achieving a flat stomach, increasing lung capacity, improving posture and reducing internal structural problems. All that whilst in a meditative state!
Nutrition workshop – An open group discussion about the basics of nutrition. It’s a chance to develop your fundamental knowledge of food and human biology.
Self-defense – A combination of wits, confidence, boxing and jujitsu that will develop your passive/aggressive potential and give you an exhausting workout.
